The initial objective was to provide quality management education for working executives and entrepreneurs. The success of this programme resulted in the inception of a part time MBA programme in 1972 followed by the full time MBA programme from 1986 onwards. With the phenomenal growth in the Infotech industry, a Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications (PGDCA) and full time MCA programme  were added to the curriculum in 1993 and 1994 recepctively and MS(IM) is being planned from 2000 onwards. 
Right since inception, the school has firmly believed that there is no substitute for good education, and all available resources are used to provide each student with quality education and facilities.
